Hey I am a developer from Greece and I have a question. If I create a game with game maker standard, can I sell it? (from my website in a low price, 5-10 euros).
this is my first post. If I have placed in the wrong category in forum, please put it in the right category.

Why of course you can sell your game! But, it's highly unlikely that it will sell.
Most game developers have to jump through such hoops as advertisement options, hosting, the purchase of Game Maker pro and a number of other things that make the game more appealing.

Most developers here spend months - if not years! - developing their game to 'Commercial standard' and even then don't go through with it. I highly suggest that you take a look at some other Commercial Games developed by Game Maker users, such as The Oil Blue, or just take a look at the Distributing Games forums to see others users stories of their experience.

In a nutshell, I'd highly reconsider selling the game, but rather release it as a free game, get some critism on it and get to work on another project.
Also, welcome to the GMC! :)

Aswell as selling it on your OWN site. upload it to a self publishing site like indiecity.com and anywhere else you can find to sell it, there are many places

5-10 euros is not a low price by the way.

I worked on my game for more than an year and I wouldn't consider selling it for more than 3 euros.

i agree, you can get top indie titles for less than that, or even in a steam sale a normal game

For anyone that comes across this post from the States - all you need to do is file a DBA (Doing Business As) with your county (about $9) then get a free federal tax idea from the IRS website.

That's it. Then you can do whatever you want from there, sign up with google play, android stores, apple store. Etc.
